The Big Picture



Due to the nature of the program, you will not only learn in classroom settings, but also through hands on experience, one on one mentoring, small group assignments, guest lecturers and work internships.

However, it is important to build a firm foundation to grow and develop your calling. So instructors invited to NEXT are chosen due to the relevance of their expertise and their desire to mentor, share life experiences, encourage spiritual growth and present sound doctrine.
